BMW Australia has a superb New Year present for car enthusiasts – the BMW M3 Pure Coupé. Priced from just $125,000, the M3 Pure Coupé is a massive $30,000 cheaper than the standard M3 Coupé.
Equipped with the driving enthusiasts in mind, the M3 Pure ditches some of the standard car’s features to arrive at a lower entry price.
“The current M3 Coupé is the most accomplished and successful ever and the M3 Pure Coupé makes the reality of owning one much, much more achievable,” said Phil Horton, BMW Group Australia Managing Director.
Despite the paired down features, the M3 Pure Coupé still comes with the equipment that counts, like the Professional Navigation System, bi-xenon headlights, Bluetooth and USB audio interface, storage and lights package, electro chromatic anti-dazzle rear view mirror, Park Distance Control front and rear and the all important carbon fibre roof.
Inside, the full leather interior has been replaced with Anthracite cloth with Black leather bolster. The headrests are crafted from black Novillo leather and embossed with the company’s ‘M’ logo. It is complemented with Titanium Shadow interior trim as standard.
The M3 Pure Coupé also gains revised pricing on some of the dynamics and performance enhancing options such as M Drive ($2,700 instead of $3,400), Dynamic Damper Control ($3,300 instead of $4,000) and the Competition Package ($1,800 instead of $2,400 and must be ordered in conjunction with M Drive and Dynamic Damper Control).
The BMW M3 Pure Coupé is powered by Munich’s awesome 4.0-litre naturally aspirated high-revving V8 engine. It produces 309kW and 400Nm, enabling it to storm from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.
The next-generation M3 Coupé, to be known as the M4, is likely to be propelled by a new six-cylinder turbocharged engine. It will be even more powerful but without the associated fuel bill.
